This volume presents frontier reviews of recent developments in bioactive natural products in cutting-edge areas by eminent experts in their respective fields. It is an essential addition to this important series on Natural Products Chemistry, generally acknowledged to be the leading series on this topic. • The first seven reviews cover recent developments in the field of bioactive marine natural products. • Additional coverage includes Novel Domino reactions; medicinal plants and phytochemicals; recent developments in bioactive natural peptides; the chemistry and pharmacology of natural cyclic lipopeptides; and the biological activities of Salvia . • The text includes a comprehensive review of biologically active compounds of semi-metals such as boron, silicon, arsenic, selenium and tellurium.
Studies in Natural Products Chemistry, Volume 10: Stereoselective Synthesis (Part F) is a collection of articles about studies on important organic molecules. The book covers studies such as that on the synthesis of cembranes as well as its natural occurrence and bioactivity; the stereoselective synthesis of Vitamin D; the synthesis of isoquinolinequinone antibiotics; and the nucleophilic addition chemistry of polyunsaturated carbonyl compounds. Also covered in the book are subjects such as developments in the synthesis of medium ring ethers; the biological properties, chemistry, and synthesis of didemnins; and natural products synthesis based on novel ring transformation. The text is recommended for organic chemists who would like to know more about the progresses in the study of important organic molecules and their implications in different fields.

Driven by the vast, yet largely unexplored, potential of bioactive organisms in the ocean and improvements in analytical techniques to facilitate their research, natural products scientists face an increasing need for single-source reference cataloging the current knowledge and state-of-the-science regarding marine natural products. Dictionary of Marine Natural Products with CD-ROM presents a comprehensive resource for more than 25,000 known natural products drawn from marine organisms. Following a similar format to the Chapman and Hall Chemical Database, this dictionary indexes each product by chemical name, CAS registry number, and compound type. Documenting all known marine natural products, each entry includes the biological source, chemical structure, physical properties, biological activity, and literature references for each compound. An accompanying CD-ROM is fully text and structure-searchable and enables unique access to this valuable resource. The editors, John Blunt and Murray Munro, both pioneers in the field, also provide an introductory monograph that describes structural compound types and marine organisms. Marine organisms offer a delicate, yet plentiful source for a vast array of novel products whose unique structural features make them suitable drug candidates, pesticides, marine anti-fouling agents, and more. The Dictionary of Marine Natural Products Web Version gives researchers a new tool for developing pharmaceutical and chemical applications of marine natural products.
